Today let's explore Chappaqua, New York. They are the first participant in our facebook showcase, "tell us about your town". See what we're doing at https://www.facebook.com/LiveLocalUSA.
Located 35 miles north of NYC, the Chappaqua-Millwood Chamber of Commerce appears active in promoting and celebrating their local businesses as well as the community. Their about statement reads "We are dedicated to fostering economic growth and advancing the commercial well-being of the community through strong and vibrant business districts." I loved the pictures from their concerts and events but also some really great ideas that to me at least, seems to set their town apart.
For example, they use notes to highlight certain occasions or times of the year. Good, basic tips and suggestions that business owners would be wise to read and share....some community organizations do so little for their independents that this is wonderful to see!
I loved "touring" Chappaqua through their facebook page and website. Visit them at:
